Guru's excellent "A Gekko" model turned out to be a pretty popular print in my kids' school, and so I fixed it up a bit, simplified it, and plated it.

  • A little taller.
  • Legs are a bit thicker.
  • Flattened at the bottom.
  • Much simpler -- from about 16,400 vertices to 410 (simplest), and 1.5MB to 40K.
  • Defects were repaired (e.g. you can now render it with OpenSCAD)
  • Repair fixes some odd slicing issues (I was getting only three toes on the back left leg)

The plate of eight prints with tails pointing in, which I find helpful for first layer adhesion.


1) Print.

2) Distribute.

Simplest - 410 vertices
Simpler - 1014 vertices
Plate - Eight "simplest" versions, tails in.
